That's very nice of you...but not the Spectators today. I went with the Bucks. I'd like to get a pair of light tan Spectators for this suit. I will look for some when I'm in London next month. I'll try an olive square.

Thanks. It's EG Capelli.

Perfect for hot weather. My shoes always get beat up quickly from walking, dancing, and a very active lifestyle.



I like the suit but there is something amiss with the crown of your hat. The crown is high for the brim width and it seems too wide as well. The dimples are also rather abrupt.

The crown of the hat is perfect for me. I will leave it at that.

A sad and tragic state of affairs. It is already in full progress. At least New Yorkers are remarkably polite and respectful, something I am not used to with the constant influx of drunk sailors and tourists in San Diego. I hope to make New York my new home soon.

You are not the first to make this, or a similar, observation. Tibor, who likely has as much knowledge on hats and hatmaking as anyone on the forum, should probably include a disclaimer with every fit he posts with a link to past discussions, something along the lines of 'If you disagree with the proportions of my hat, please click here before commenting'.

Though you had no way of knowing, it's an item that's essentially closed to debate, and not worth the effort.

I am not 100% sold on the waistcoat in this fit. I think it is still better than the previous one with it, but still we're not there yet.

I am slowly leaning towards treating it as strictly casual piece and wearing it without tie, standalone or with informal spring/summer jackets.

@blekit I think you're right, the waistcoat doesn't go, it looks too out of place with the bright checks. Would've been pretty good otherwise, some nice textures.

I don't mind the waistcoat here if you lost the tie and had a different square.  Even without the waistcoat, I think the tie doesn't go with the outfit.  A brown or navy tie would do better here with the olive pants and tan jacket.

Labour day. Hence the red knot. Off to church in Donegal tweed.

I disagree. I think the tie is key to the outfit. It's a spring color and livens up the outfit for a spring day. Changing to a navy or (ugh) brown tie would demolish that vibe completely. I do agree with the comments about the waistcoat. Without it, we'd see more of the tie, which I think would let the tie add even more springtime cheer to the fit.
